At the request of many of you who were unable to attend last week's webinar, we are pleased to repeat it this week.

Farmer field school networks at local, national and global level are a starting point to build positive responses to the pandemic. 

In this webinar, we will share and discuss:

  • Introductory remarks by the Eastern Africa Field School Support Hub, hosted by AFAAS
  • Discover FAO Angola’s communication campaign with posters on basic precaution measures for FFS
  • How this campaign became global and used across the world by FFS practitioners
  • The work of the global farmer field school platform to support the FFS community in times of COVID-19
  • Basic precaution measures and key considerations when running an FFS
  • Suggested FFS activities on COVID-19 and how to implement them
